I couldn’t believe you didn’t already know the answer. It “work” like this, from the Gospels, Epistles, and the Eucharist:

And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you.

And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.

And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.

Take this, all of you, and eat it:
this is my body which will be given up for you.
Take this, all of you, and drink from it:
this is the cup of my blood,
the blood of the new and everlasting covenant.
It will be shed for you and for many
so that sins may be forgiven.
Do this in memory of me.

So, you are saying then that Jesus broke the Law by eating His own flesh and drinking His own blood BEFORE dying on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins?

A simple *yes* or *no* will do.
